The story about the car

I have owned this car for over 15 years now. It has always been here in Jupiter, Florida in my climate controlled garage on a trickle charger and stabil in the gas tank.

I traded for this car with longtime collector car dealer Marvin Freeman from Twenty First Century auctions here in nearby Pompano Beach. He is still there today and always has cars for sale on eBay.

The reason I mention how I acquired the car and from who is at the time Mr. Freeman claimed the it was an actual mileage car and previously owned by Michael Jordan the basketball player. (there is no documentation of any kind that verifies this)

I made the trade for the car at the time purely based upon condition not low mileage or prior celebrity ownership claims. Original top and interior that look amazing with a one repaint in correct Firemist Gold. Rust free with beautiful floors (see pics) All original chrome, stainless, glass, etc. and drives like a dream.

Must see and drive to appreciate(15 miles from WPB airport)

Recommissioning the car

After enjoying the car for several years and putting approximate 5k miles on the car I moved onto other cars. A few months ago, when I decided that it was time to sell and have someone else enjoy. I began to go through the car. It always started and ran great because it was well stored in a climate controlled garage on a trickle charger with stabil added to the gas and was started regularly so that was no issues.

What needed attention were the AC, cooling system and most of the rubber on the car.

Here is what I did over the last 90 days.

AC recommissioned including work on the compressor, new AC relay, new condenser, new dryer, new evaporator.

New radiator

New water pump

New convertible roof rail whether strip kit including header seal

New pillar post seals

New window sweep seals and belt line molding

New rear window whether strip

New trunk whether strip

New trunk cardboard,

New trunk lining material including spare tire cover

New complete front end splash apron kit

Trunk jack refurbished with correct wood chuck

I hope I have included all relevant info but I’m sure that might be some things that I have missed. I’m listing this car to sell so please ask questions, better yet come see and drive car in person to really appreciate.
